30 years fall of the Berlin wall-time for a New East Policy?

30 years fall of the Berlin wall-time for a New East Policy?

Yesterday was the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Time to reflect on the development of the last 30 years and why we are on the verge of a new Cold War today. Perhaps Gorbachev made the mistake of not securing his own design for a New Europe at the time.. The United States and the United Kingdom got Germany´s  NATO membership, France the euro, Gorbachev $ 13 billion for the withdrawal of troops and $ 1.5…

30 Jahre Mauerfall-Zeit für eine Neue Ostpolitik?

30 Jahre Mauerfall-Zeit für eine Neue Ostpolitik?

Gestern war das vielgefeierte 30 jährige Jubiläum des Fall der Berliner Mauer und der Reichspogromnacht. Zeit auch einmal die Entwicklung der letzten 30 Jahre zu reflektieren und warum wir heute am Rande eines Neuen Kalten Kriegs stehen (Betrachtungen zum Antisemitismsu und des Wiederstarken des Rechtsradikalismus inklusive AfD zu anderer Zeit). Möglicherweise beging Gorbatschow den Fehler, dass er damals nicht seinen eigenen Design samt einhergehender Forderungen zu einem Neuen Europa und einem europäischen Haus vertraglich absicherte. Die USA und GB bekamen…

The Myth of the New Silkroad:Xi´s Great Leap Forward?

The Myth of the New Silkroad:Xi´s Great Leap Forward?

Read the article by Ryan Manuel in the Jamestown Foundation’s Chinese Leadership Monitor: „Twists in the Belt and Road“ Assuming that the BRI is a centrally planned, strategic-geopolitical project based on a well thought-out master plan and the mastermind Xi, the article shows that it is above all an economic project that is essentially determined by local cadres. Foreign Ministry and military officials remain outside, it was not Xi’s priority, mainly state-owned enterprises are promoted and lending and financing are…

Mythos Neue Seidenstrasse: Xis Grosser Sprung nach vorn?

Lesenswerter Artikel von Ryan Manuel im Chinese Leadership Monitor der Jamestown Foundation:„Twists in the Belt and Road“ Ging man immer davon aus, dass die BRI ein zentral geplantes,strategisch-geopolitisches Projekt nach einem durchdachten Masterplan und dem Mastermind Xi sei,so zeigt der Artikel,dass es vor allem ein ökonomisches Projekt ist,das im wesentlichen von lokalen Kadern bestimmt wird,Vertreter des Aussenministeriums und des Militärs aussen vor bleiben, es nicht Xis Priorität war,vor allem Staatsunternehmen gefördert werden und die Kreditvergabe und Finanzierung nur zu 8%von…

China passes new digital currency law- the struggle between US-Libra and the digital yuan

Shenzhen will be a pilot city to test the new digital currency–maybe also to weaken Hongkong´s position as financial center. China`s goverment long resisted the introduction of a digital currency as it saw problems with national soveringity, the weaking of the central bank, money laundering, stability of the financial system and it also refered to the volatile performance of the bitcoin.
